Looking to get a rear stand, should I spend the funds on a pit bull or will the Venom fit the bill, bike will not be stored on the stand, just used for routine mantince. What’s everyone using?

I have an Harbor Freight read stand which works fine and was cheap.  I have a Venom front head stand which I an also very happy with.  

I have a habor freight rear spool stand works great for chain cleaning and the like, but I need the venom rear paddle lift to remove the rear wheel. I also give a +1 for the venom triple tree head stand. If you buy both venom front and rear at the same time I think you get a better deal than buying individually.

Dude, Harbor Freight stand is 30 bucks. Works great. its all you need. I have spent money on the pitbull and other stands in the past....the HF gets the job done. I would recommend dipping the lift arms in some rubber coating like flex seal as the rubber that comes with the stand is shotty and only last about 3 lifts.

My bike came with a Venom rear stand, and picked up a matching Venom headlift  stand (with pin kit #2 for the 21mm pin from Amazon) - they are not built as well as the Pitbull stands, but work well for what I need, and I plan on storing the bike on them this winter.

I failed to mention that I also have a HF rear stand. I use it on anything with spools. I made spools for my FZ, but I needed a head stand. I ordered the Venom kit with a rear paddle stand to give myself options. I use the Venom rear paddle stand to lift a near 600lb CB1100F...then I sat on it. I'm 220lbs. I also have sat on my FZ while on the HF stand. They are both solid options. I wouldn't think twice to store a bike on either stand, though I'm a little wary of someone bumping in to a bike that's just sitting on paddles. Jmo.
